It is quite a momentous day. All of the creative products, which have bloomed in the Genesis garden over the past years, are gathered now in electronic format stretching toward my visions. We are a global family and I have been blessed to travel the world enough to know that people are people wherever we live. Music, love, and creative thought have no language limitations. Which makes me even more excited to realize that Genesis kids can travel the world just as I like to do.
So, the first big trip is under way. It is a thrill to know that the Light of Hope Ministry for girls in Kenya will be receiving by special delivery the very first copy of the DVD, Learning About Me. Mike Ahola just animated the original book, Wings to Fly, and a new kids book, which is packaged in this DVD...., animated characters, music, voice-overs, and artistry from the books. On top of that, I was blessed to receive a testimonial from Brian Tracy, international speaker and author of many books. His comment about the new book, I Like Myself Too: "This wonderful, positive, uplifting message has changed hearts and minds all over the world."
So, it is a momentous day when a goal line is crossed. Of course, I know it is really the start not the finish of the race. I will be excited to hear the stories of the girls in Kenya watching the DVD over and over. Sandy Karanja, the co-founder of the program is making the delivery and has promised to bring back stories after her visit. There will be other stories from other kids in other places.
I have a song going through my head...The Other Side of the World. It was composed and sung by Michael Vincent, a MN native and family friendly movie producer. The lyrics describe how every boy and girl on the other side of the world also has hopes and dreams, pride in country, and smiling faces that respond to friendship.
Hello World. We are launched. You bet I'm smiling.
